Cox wins thriller at Cottage Grove 

By Ben Deatherage

COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (May 16) – Saturday’s IMCA Xtreme Motorsports Modified main event at Cottage Grove Speedway was a thriller and no one had a better seat for the show than Kinzer Cox.

Only a couple incidents took place, making the race pretty much stoppage free. Jake Mayden set a wicked pace for most of the race and looked to have the event well in hand before Cox worked his way through the field and into the lead on lap 21.

From that point, Cox pulled away from the rest of the field and made his second straight visit to victory lane. Gus Cooper finished second while Mayden ended the evening in third.

Jayson Nelson turn some heads in the first half of the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod race.

Gene Ashley eventually caught Nelson and passed him on lap seven. Ashley would lead the remain­der of the laps and put his ride in victory lane for the second time this season.

Jimmy Owen was second and Nelson third.
